english THEME: Beyond STEAM: Pathways to Innovation
Ever since its inception, the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) has focused on producing graduates who are qualified for future science-related jobs and who are highly skilled in computer science. This vision stemmed from clear awareness of the importance of Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology to prepare a generation of youth who are able to compete in the global economy.
The "Beyond STEAM: Pathways to Innovation” Symposium aims at providing educators with a unique professional development experience to explore the principles of STEAM, (an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of Science, Technology,
Engineering, Art, and Mathematics), as well as technology integration. Moreover, this year conference emphasizes on linking STEAM classes to innovation.
Throughout the event, educators will be involved in activities to discover and share best practices related to STEAM education, innovation, as well as educational technology. Participants will leave the Symposium better equipped to meet the learning requirements of the digital natives who are expected to apply rigorous Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics by engaging in inquiry and logical reasoning, as well as gaining skills in computing and computational thinking. Inside and Outside the Classroom.
In addition to the keynote presentations, the symposium will offer three consecutive sessions everyday where each session encompasses around 25 concurrent workshops/presentations. Many of the workshops/presentations are repeated to give teachers a chance to attend their workshop of choice. With this amount of workshops/presentations, IAT TEC 2015 attendees will have a wide variety of topics to choose from.
A special set of innovative lesson showcasing booths will be displayed as part of the exhibition. The
Innovative lesson showcase will provide educators with opportunities to explore successful lessons designed by teachers. In addition, exhibitors coming
from the education industry will demonstrate their STEAM based curriculums, systems, and technologies.
